Warren Buffett expresses his full faith in U.S. debt despite the S&P downgrade. "If anything, it may change my opinion on S&P," Buffett says. And while Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) is a big investor in Moody's (MCO), it did hold at least $40B in T-bills at the end of June.

    Here is the deal..when you mince words...yes the owners of T-bills will get paid back in US dollars....but that dollar today ...will be worth 100-1 million times more that what you are paid with....so as an investor you are toast..as a politician you can say "see we paid you back in full"....what side do you want to own
